] [inaudible conversations] spent yemen's opposition party accused the government of attempting to assassinate their leader this week. >> now a look at u.s. counterterrorism efforts in yemen, which has been slowed by the political unrest in that country. this senate foreign relations subcommittee hearing is an hour and 50 minutes. pennsylvania senator bob casey is the chairman. >> the hearing will come to order. i will start with an opening statement, and then we will of course introduce our witnesses, and then we may have other statements as well. but i want to thank f1 for being here. we're getting started just after right time. and we are here today for it very important purpose. we're here today to discuss the complex health challenges facing the united states policy in yemen, and that examination of policy comes amid five months of popular protests and political unrest. during this historic period of sweeping change in countries like egypt, tunisia and syria, yemen often gets overlooked. however, as result of the power vacuum caused by president saleh's departure to saudi arabia in june,
that the vice chairman made reference to with respect to al qaeda's presence in yemen and in places like somalia makes it particularly challenging from a counterterrorism perspective. i think that, in some ways, the opportunity that presents itself now to the counterterrorism community and the united states as well as with their allies around the world is that we must actually redouble our efforts and is the president has said al qaeda is on the path to defeat but we have to look at that thread in all of its various forms not only in the tribal regions of yemen, but in the foxtrot and pakistan and also in parts of north africa. and in somalia. ultimately, the nctc's mission is to stop another terrorist attack and if i may just say that the leadership of mike leiter and an acting capacity of andrew lieb and i think nctc has played a vital role but it is a team approach and we face a challenging at times as we ever have. >> are you confident that we have the ability to get no work across the agencies as you obviously to coordinate and integrate all of that analyses? do you think we have got it? >>

. it is true these changes may do -- may bring new challenges in the short term as we are seeing in yemen. it is also true that terrorist organizations and nations that support them will seek to capitalize on the instability that change can sometimes bring. that's why we're working closely with allies and partners to make sure these malevolent actors do not succeed in hijacking this moment of hope for their violent dance. as president obama has said, these dramatic changes mark a historic moment of opportunity. so too for our counter- terrorism efforts. for decades, terrorist organizations like al qaeda have preached the only way to effect changes through violence. that claim has been thoroughly repudiated and has been repeated by ordinary citizens in tunisia, egypt and beyond, who are changing and challenging their governments through peaceful protests, even as they are sometimes met with horrific brutality as in libya and syria. moreover, these citizens rejected the medieval ideology of al qaeda that divides people by faith and gender, opting instead to work together. muslims and christ
intercepted intelligence indicates al qaeda terrorists in yemen may attempt to surgically implant explosives, or explosive components in passengers to carry out suicide attacks. >> we see this as the evolution of how they can try to defeat us, to get around those layers of security that we have now. >> reporter: under one scenario, the terrorists onboard a plane would inject a chemical detonator into the part of the body where the device was implanted, or it could be a radio-controlled detonator set off by a cell phone. intelligence suggests it would be tried on a flight to the u.s. from overseas. airlines that fly here have been advised and they have been urged to increase security with more physical pat-downs, checks for traces of explosive chemicals, more questioning of passengers about their reasons for travel, and more use of the full body scanners in airports that have them. a former homeland security official says while there's no single piece of technology that could reliably detect something hidden in the body, such a plan would be hard to carry out. >> you don't know how the explos
